Given the vast amount of research related to behavioral assessment,
it is difficult for clinicians to keep abreast of new developments.
In recent years, there have been advances in assessment, case
conceptualization, treatment planning, treatment strategies for
specific disorders, and considerations of new ethical and legal
issues. Keeping track of advances requires monitoring diverse
resources limited to specific disorders, many of which are
theoretical rather than practical, or that offer clinical advice
without providing the evidence base for treatment recommendations.
This handbook was created to fill this gap, summarizing critical
information for adult behavioral assessment.
The Clinician s Handbook of Adult Behavioral Assessment provides a
single source for understanding new developments in this field,
cutting across strategies, techniques, and disorders. Assessment
strategies are presented in context with the research behind those
strategies, along with discussions of clinical utility, and how
assessment and conceptualization fit in with treatment planning.
The volume is organized in three sections, beginning with general
issues, followed by evaluations of specific disorders and problems,
and closing with special issues. To ensure cross chapter
consistency in the coverage of disorders, these chapters are
formatted to contain an introduction, assessment strategies,
research basis, clinical utility, conceptualization and treatment
planning, a case study, and summary. Special issue coverage
includes computerized assessment, evaluating older adults,
behavioral neuropsychology, ethical-legal issues, work-related
issues, and value change in adults with acquired disabilities.
Suitable for beginning and established clinicians in practice, this
handbook will provide a ready reference toward effective adult
